A review of Styles P's "Float"

Coming almost five months after the release of his very good, yet very slept on 5th solo album, "The World's Hardest MC Project", one third of The Lox, Styles P, returns with his 6th solo album, "Float", produced exclusively by the underrated Scram Jones.

1. Float (Intro)
A brief, but dope intro to the album and it does set the proper tone.

2. Manson Murder (featuring Noreaga)
I wouldn't have guessed Nore would show up on this album, a day after I reviewed his latest album no less, lol. It's all good though. Backed by clips of infamous murderer Charles Manson, SP and Nore come hard on this one. Nore sounds better one this one song than he did on his own latest album. 3.5 out of 5

3. Bodies In The Basement
Well, just by looking at that title, you know what this song is about, and again, SP brings it completely. 3.5 out of 5

4. Hater Love (featuring Sheek Louch)
Wow, this joint goes SO hard, lyrics and production wise. SP and Sheek pull no punches, and they're right, even the haters would love this one. 4.5 out of 5

5. Take It Back
Man, five songs in and this is a great album. SP takes it back with the old school hook and a thumping breakbeat. Nice all around. 4 out of 5

6. Haze vs. Sour (Skit)

7. I Need Weed
I'm not a smoker by any means, but I like this one, and I'm sure the smokers will too. 3.5 out of 5

8. Red Eye (featuring Jadakiss)
Another dope collabo, this time with the Kiss. I'll tell you one thing, to this day when The Lox get together in any form, the motivation and energy is still there, and this one is no different, much like "Hater Love". 4 out of 5

9. Reckless (featuring Raekwon)
SP and Rae come reckless in a hip hop form, and what results is a tight song. 4 out of 5

10. Shoot You Down
Another banger here, in an album full of them. 4 out of 5

11. Open Up (featuring Bullpen)
Bullpen apparently is a new group affiliated with D-Block. Either way, they all hold their own alongside SP. 3.5 out of 5

12. Screw Y'all (featuring Scram Jones)
This apply titled closer is so good, and does a fine job of closing the album on a tight note. 4 out of 5

HOT DAMN, this album is incredible and it's possibly the best album right now, and it deserves more attention that it's receiving. Styles P is certainly getting better each time he drops an album nowadays, and Scram Jones deserves more recognition after his production on this album. 4.5 stars all around and a STRONG recommendation.
